TxDOT will temporarily close one lane of access on Business 114, or Byron Nelson Boulevard, from North Oak Street to Cannon Parkway. The closure will last Aug. 31 from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m.
In addition, beginning Sept. 1 at midnight, Rusk Street, Travis Street and Denton Drive will each close in the downtown area from Hwy. 377 to Oak Street.
TxDOT is estimating a noon return to normal access for the affected downtown streets. Residents should expect delays if traveling in the area of Hwy. 377 construction, according to a city news release.
The estimated $33.7 million Hwy. 377 project is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023. The project will include reconstruction and widening of Hwy. 377 from a two-lane rural road to a four-lane, divided roadway with raised medians and sidewalks.
According to TxDOT, the project will implement additional left-turn lanes and traffic signals at a number of intersections within the project limits. A new railroad bridge and retaining walls will also be constructed at the Hwy. 377 and Byron Nelson Boulevard intersection.
